About Us

Remodeling and Home Design

“Concrete, paradoxical by nature. Strong and hard in form and function; Soft and warm in esthetic. Giving a sense of mass while achieving architectural delicateness. Surrounding our senses as the foundation of our man made physical world, the artisanal potential invites an experience so personal and as unique as the individual.”

– Jake Brady

A Little About Jake


A native of Nova Scotia, in 1997 Jake followed the warmer weather south. Once landing in Sarasota, FL, he started a business remodeling homes. After remodeling homes for 10 years, Jake decided he wanted to put his talents to more creative uses. Right around this time Jake came across a book he’d been given by a friend several years previous, “Concrete Countertops” by Fu Tung Cheng. The dust was blown off the cover and life changed. With initial training received from Concrete Countertop Institute in both wet cast and GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete), Jake Brady Concrete By Design was started. Jake believes strongly in staying informed in his trade and thus has continued to train under fellow master artisans around the country.

“Concrete is the best of both worlds, those being functionality and style.”

Board Form Planter

It’s concrete, I promise. This is a technique that Jake has wanted to try for some time and had the opportunity when a client requested a planter for a client’s house that has an industrial feel. Jake felt that Board Form would be a perfect addition to this area, lending a rustic but modern feel. […]
